Another day, another chateau.  A much larger and better-known feature, and open to the public, with guided tours.The Pocket2 came along too, of course.

Haha. Another literally correct answer, that doesn't address the intended question
A quick google search should help you win this one

Wow, great shot Mr. B.    Could that be Chateau de Serrant in the Loire Valley?

Incorrect. I'm on my backside
With a little bit of effort you could have won this one.
As it is, Downtown RDB has beaten everyone today

It is indeed
A fairly easy one for a Monday morning.
Nice research RDB.
We had a great visit there.
No flying within the grounds, as the owners live on the premises.
But I got some footage with the zoom lenses of the Mini3Pro and the M2Z.
Posting soon.

It is the Chateau de Serrant. Well worth a visit if you're ever in the area.
Very informative guided tour.

A very nice place and a bit more telling framing. I guess there's a river in the background. Maybe a tiny clue?

The chateau is surrounded by a moat, Seb. Further in the background is a landscaped garden with large lake, fed by a small stream. Near St.Georges sur Loire

AH, I didn't dare to mention the Loire. To call that place "sur Loire" is a bit of a joke!
Chateau de Serrant. Nice!

That's the one Depp.  I'm sure you'd love the place.
It's just 2Kms north of the Loire River, in the Maine-et-Loire (49) département.
So "Sur Loire" is not unreasonable

Thanks.  I have been doing some research on "things to see" in the Loire Valley and I thought I remembered that so went back and had another look so figured it was worth a shot at saying Chateau de Serrant.

Definitely a place I'd like to see in person and take the guided tour.

You could spend a week in the Loire valley alone, visiting chateaux which give guided tours

No, you sure didn't.  But I got to start my initial planning and then build in a bit of time buffer.  

Speaking of that I'm looking at taking my boat down to Cancun since the end of hurricane season is finally upon us.  Waters will be much calmer and price of marine fuel always seems to go down in the winter months.  My oldest grandson graduates in 2 weeks from 5 straight years of college with his Masters degree.  He wants to take a few months off before he goes back to start his Doctorate degree work in June.  So he has "volunteered" to go with me on the trip.  Also nice that he speaks Spanish fluently.

I think he just got himself "hired" as crew Goos to know he's doing well.
So you're off down Mexico way. About 400 nautical miles?

I was judging from the tip of Florida, below Miami. Forgetting that you'll probably have to navigate from further north and then around Key West?

Exactly right.    It's about a 19 hour trip as I'll keep the cruising speed down to use less fuel.
